DataArt appoints financial technology heavyweight Cliff Moyce as global head of its financial practice
NEW YORK, LONDON - January 12, 2016 - Global technology consulting firm DataArt has appointed the seasoned financial services and capital markets executive Cliff Moyce to head up its rapidly expanding financial practice.
As a hands-on executive specializing in major transformation, Moyce has successfully led many high-profile companies through periods of significant change. These companies include LIFFE (London International Financial Futures and Options Exchange), Markit, Lloyds of London, Orix Investment & Development Capital, and Credit Market Analysis (CMA). As Chief Operating Officer at CMA, Moyce transformed the products, services, technology, operations and structure and led the integration into a new parent company (McGraw Hill Financial).
DataArt Managing Director Alexei Miller said:
"We are delighted that Cliff Moyce has now taken on the role of leading our financial practice globally. His experiences in everything from building and launching major new mortgage and insurance companies, to leading the automation of trading at Europe's largest derivatives exchange, to building the first automated index arbitrage system for equities in London, to running a private equity company will be of huge benefit to our clients. We believe that Cliff is the right kind of leader to take our successful finance practice to the new heights. His experience will be invaluable to us."
Over the years, DataArt has successfully provided services to a wide range of financial organisations including exchanges, banks, hedge funds and other investment management firms, as well as fintech and market data companies. Noting the major shifts in data management, digital banking and legacy banking platform modernization, DataArt is now aiming to bring specific offerings to the market responding to these pressing needs.
"The two key concerns for me in considering whether to take this position were, one - is there passion and ambition to grow further? And two: is there the expertise available to fulfill this ambition? With DataArt, both boxes were ticked and I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to lead this exciting, top tier team. DataArt has been a reliable technology partner for many investment and asset management firms, and I am certain that other institutions - insurance providers, pension funds, savings & loans, and mortgage companies - can greatly benefit from the services of DataArt."
Moyce is a regular contributor to management journals and speaker at financial events on topics such as business change; systems development; innovation in financial services; IT security, mergers and acquisitions; management education; and, financial crime prevention. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Management Services and holds an MSc in Organisational Psychology from Birkbeck, University of London.
